My family's visit this month brought us to West Loop, where many of our favorite Chicago restaurants are. While waiting for a table, we did a little exploring through the historic meatpacking district just around the corner. This was actually the center for the world's meatpacking industry up until the 1920's and established as far back as the Civil War era in the 1800's! It's early industrial beginnings were apparent everywhere, and my 50's day dress seemed so appropriate among this vintage blue collar area. I had actually been wanting to wear it again all summer, and just when I thought I had missed my chance, we had a 75 degree day among our brisk Fall October days. So I jumped at the opportunity to don this bright halter frock one more time.
Have a lovely weekend, and stay tuned for my 3-part Halloween-inspired series next week!
